Shortening of working hours as a law-trend in the development of capitalist production (Russia, Nizhniy Novgorod)
The article justifies the application of the “law-trend” category to contemporary economic theory, shows that the increase in capitalist labor productivity conditions the tendency both for shorter working hours and to the decrease of employment that runs counter to this former. Dominance of the first tendency turns it into a law-trend. The author analyzes Keynes’s forecast, made a hundred years ahead, on the introduction of 3-hour long working shifts and sees it as a corroboration of the law-trend for the shortening of working time
Key words: working time, forecasting socio-economic development
Pages: 51 - 56
